     Traffic sputtered along more or less as usual in June at the complete review, with India slipping past the UK as the country with the second-most visitors to the site (behind the US).
     Several debuts did well, and the big books by Joël Dicker and Donna Tartt showed staying power.

For recent bestseller lists, go to previous lists.
For annual and older lists, see also the 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, , 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 , and 2013 lists.
